Fields & Dungeons [How to create] Nov 9, 2012 18:51:23 GMT -5

Like with R:Fusion's predecessors, to transport to an area within The World a series of three keywords must be entered into the Chaos Gate coordinates. The combinations for these keywords are what result in fields/dungeons and determine such parameters as their difficulty, terrain, and weather, amongst other habitat.
In .hack//Infinity, players are able to make their own area by starting a thread in the level sub-boards of the desired server. Which sub-board your area belongs to will depend on what level difficulty you want to give it. Here are some guidelines that will help you make your thread faster:
1. Firstly, choose a combination of three keywords, one from the 1st words, one from the 2nd words, and one from the 3rd words, to be used in that order. Make sure the words match the area you have in mind in some way! (ie. Don't use the words Smiling Dancing Puppy for a creepy dark forest!)
2. Your keyword combination will be the topic tittle of your thread, along with the symbol of the server to the left of the tittle.
Symbol for delta server fields: Δ
Symbol for Theta server fields: Θ
3. Next up is describing your area. The first post of your thread must ONLY contain your area’s description. The roleplaying actually begins from your second post up. The description must be justified and may be as small as three sentences, but no larger than a brief paragraph. It is highly recommended that you put up a picture above the description of what your intended area should look like, as it makes visualizing it a lot easier for others. (No real-life pictures. This is an anime fantasy/steampunk setting, so the picture should match with the theme somehow.)
4. You must specify at the beginning of your description what type of area it is: Field or Dungeon?
5. That’s it! Post away.
When making a thread in a Root Town's sub-board, your thread tittle can be anything you want it to be! The description is already set up in that board, so you don't have to describe it again.
Some general areas have already been provided within each server for players to post in, which are those put up by CC Corp. Use them as an example on how to set up your own area. Also: It is more likely that a plot event will occur within CC Corp areas. To enter a general area, simply post in that thread and your character will be considered to have "gated in"(or you may specify that your character was already previously in that area). As stated in the Rules/Guidelines, there are no private threads. As such, you can invade anyone's thread just as much as anyone can invade yours (I advice you to consider the mood when invading an area with many players already in it though). This does not mean, however, that you must interact with everyone within that area! You can leave said thread/area by simply 'logging off' and exiting the thread as well.
If a thread has the tag [Dungeon] in the tittle, it likely means that a player(with granted permission) or GM is hosting a dungeon event. For more information on GM/Player-hosted dungeons, read the Events section.
